Congratulations on reaching the age of being able to cast your vote for the first time. I know that it will be a very special occasion for you to enter that polling booth during the upcoming General Elections which are due to be held by mid-May, 2013.
My name is Edmund Gregory Hinkson and I have been chosen as the Barbados Labour Party’s candidate for St. James North, your constituency. I am aware of some of the concerns and challenges of the youth, being the father of a daughter and a son, both under the age of twenty one. I hope that you are positively involved in your community’s development through sports, culture, church, a service club or any other worthwhile venture. It is also not too early for you to be associated with a political organization. It is my heartfelt wish that you join my Party and me on this exciting journey to improve the quality of life for you and for our citizens.
I look forward eagerly to meeting and interacting with you in the near future, if we haven’t yet met. We can then share ideas, policies and plans on how best we can together make life better for you and for all of the young people in our constituency as well as in our country.
I wish to share in your interests, encourage your involvement and support and earn your vote to be your next parliamentary representative.
EDMUND G. HINKSON
